Online PR News – 30-October-2010 – – Tucked away in a hidden glen in the scenic mountains south of Dublin Ireland this Wicklow self catering vacation rental is an ideal base for a traditional Irish Christmas. In nearby Glenmalure valley join the locals on St Stephens Day (December 26) in the old Irish tradition of the Wren Boys. In Irish, December 26 is called LÃ¡ FhÃ©ile StiofÃ¡n or LÃ¡ an DreoilÃn â€” the latter translates as the Day of the Wren or Wren's Day. This ancient tradition can still be seen in the magnificent mountain glen of Glenmalure, County Wicklow and it really is a memorable experience. The Wren Boys walk the roads of the valley dressed in old clothes and playing traditional Irish music. Money is collected for local charities and unlike olden times, the wren is not killed as the Wren Boys march with a fake bird. The festivities reach a high point in the lovely pub in Glenmalure where locals and visitors alike are made welcome. Join in the festivities and return to the beautiful Aughavannagh Cottage with the snow clad mountains surrounding the valley.
